Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm trying to help my mum in spain.... (I'm in England.. unfortunately!) have just taken her HP G6000 notebook out to her and when she tried to turn it on it has a black screen. Have tried the power supplies (ac adaptor and battery, and draining the computer etc etc), have also tried the brightness (fn F7). The notebook seems to be working and at one point she could (only) just see a very faint desktop. I have looked at the hp website and it says something about the lid actuator switch, but she can't find it on the computer, and i can't find a good enough picture so that i can find it and tell her where to look, i'm also aware that it could be a backlight problem... is there any way of fixing this without replacing the screen........ or can you suggest anything else?

I don't know this particular laptop model but you could be right about the lid switch. A lot of HP laptops have a small push switch that looks like a round plasic peg placed on the keyboard panel near the screen hinge. When the lid is closed, it simply presses on the peg and turns off the screen. These switches can be dodgy sometimes but oftem if you press and release them a few times they will work ok. Don't tell your mum to look for a switch, ask her to look for a small round peg or pin near the hinge when she opens the lid and then tell her to press and release it a few times.....

I live in Spain and bought the Syphony 3325 in England. I am trying to use it in Spain, but it won't work. Any help would be appreciated


Dear An Onymous,
There could be several reason you are having problems.
I should first suspect the electricity that powers it.
I think England and Spain use different electricity, perhaps both the voltage and the Hertz may not be the same.
Then there is the telephone signal that you are trying to receive. Those signals may be different from England to Spain.
I would recommend to try to contact the company in England from which you purchased the Symphony, and see if they can help you. God bless your efforts.

Compaq F5OO WILL NOT BOOT UP, LIGHT TURNS ON FOR 1SECOND


estapleto459

first thing I would like you to do is try to clear the flee power off the system.

To do this unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery.

Next hold down the power button for 30 to 45 seconds.

After you do this plug in just the AC Adapter and try to turn on the Notebook.

Let me know if you still have trouble

I have a hp g6000 power coes on but screen is


1. If you have it plugged to a power adapter it could be that the AC adapter is not charging the battery.
2. Try removing the battery with the AC adapter plug in and see if the PC will. if so then you may need a new battery.
3. You will need to get new AC adapter and battery frome the manufacturer or authorized dealer. Third party device are not recommended because they usually are not up to specifications.
I hope this helps.

HP G6000 laptop wont start


Extract your battery from your laptop for 12 min, then start your computer using your power cable (don't use your battery), if not try pressing F2 rapidly when opening, after you open your operating system try changing your graphics card drivers.
